    I had a bit of a search and couldn't find a generic sports thread. Just lots of people asking about the suitability of M43's for sports/action photography.

    Anyhoo, figured I'd start with a slightly tongue in cheek pair of shots . . .

    The World Cup 2016 of rhythmic gymnastics is held in Finland this year, and I got tickets from my ex to go see it! The girls were amazing! If you have never seen it, you can't imagine how rough it is.. I had my E-M5 with me in order to get used to it. I normally use the E-P5 but as I got this as a back-up body I thought I should at least know how to use it! I used the 75/1.8 for the most part, but I also had the 75-300 with me. Some of the pictures are quite cropped as it was sometimes too difficult to change from vertical to horizontal position and back in the blink of an eye.

    In gymnastics it's all about the technique and perfection of movement, and as I tried to capture that, I wanted to get rid of the motion blur. I had to use fairly fast shutter speeds to get the poses clear, mostly 1/400th and even then there is some blurriness but it's OK. I would've wanted to try some slower speeds also but never got around to do that!
